Mind Over Mirrors, AKA Jaime Fennelly, performs here in a concert produced by Issue Project Room in November 2012. Part of Fennelly's two-night residency at Brooklyn exhibition space, in this set he was accompanied by renowned choreographer and long-time collaborator Miguel Gutierrez. After four years of constant collaboration, trans-continental performance, cohabitation, and detritus exorcising from 2001-2004 as their duo Sabotage and the early formative years of The Powerful People, this evening marks the first time Fennelly and Gutierrez had performed together in over eight years.

1 p.m. – 2 p.m.: "Issue Project Room Radio: Che Chen and Sherlock Terry"
Hosted by Eve Essex. Originally aired Feb. 4, 2013 on "Issue Project Room Radio" will air on free103point9 Online Radio and WGXC 90.7-FM at 2 p.m. the second Saturday of the month in 2013. For this new work, commissioned by Issue Project Room and premiered on September 8, 2012, Chen and Terry have devised customized instruments that feature large numbers of strings (as many as 80 on a single instrument) arranged according to highly redundant tuning schemes designed to maximize on the occurrence of string sympathy. These instruments- modified autoharps and a lapsteel guitar- are designed to reveal the subtle interactions of closely tuned strings as they sound and decay. Plucked single notes surrounded by halos of sympathetic vibration, chords made of shifting, sustained drones and cascading, harp-like washes of sound are made possible through playing techniques both borrowed and invented. Compositionally, this piece is intended to create an unhurried, focused listening experience, an immersive sound environment that lends itself easily to a slowing of sense perception. Structurally, it borrows much from what is known in North Indian classical music as the alap, the slow, preliminary stage of an improvisation in which the notes of the scale (raga) are gradually introduced one at a time.

2 p.m. – 3 p.m.: "Issue Project Room Radio: Poetry Out Loud"
Hosted by Eve Essex via "Issue Project Room Radio" will air on free103point9 Online Radio and WGXC 90.7-FM at 2 p.m. the second Saturday of the month in 2013.

The driving forces behind Poetry Out Loud were two couples: Peter and Patricia B McGarry (Harleman), from Topeka, Kansas, and Klyd and Linda Watkins, from Nashville; this is word-as-sound art, a heavy trip. On May 4th, 2012, ISSUE Project Room presented a rare live performance with the Watkins, along with special guests Tom Carter, Keith Connolly and Dave Nuss. The set starts with an opening instrumental track by Messages. Part of Issue Project Room's "Littoral" series, the event celebrated Poetry Out Loud's 2012 re-release by De Stijl records.
